“This collection makes good on what it sets out to do: help high school and college teachers think about understanding and teaching the Vietnam War in new and innovative ways. There is a clear need for this kind of hands-on volume.”
—Mark Philip Bradley, author of Vietnam at War
“[A] much needed guide to help teachers at all levels navigate the complexities of the Vietnam War and the ever-increasing material available about it.”
—History Teacher 47, no. 3 (May 2014)
“No book has combined the scholarship, methods of teaching, and source guides as this one does.”

But this is just a beginning. Our book will help illuminate important figures and events, with essays by experts who possess substantial teaching experience. In addition, the book will be a one-of-a-kind guide for teachers, helping them to understand how the central narratives of U.S. history speak to queer lives and, just as importantly, vice versa.
